Okay makes sense.  I'm pretty new at genetics especially anything to do with buff.

I am an Oregon breeder of  Barred plymouth Rocks,  Buff Orpingtons, Easter Eggers, Light Sussex , And Black copper marans.

I just recently crossed a buff orpington rooster with a blue copper maran hen and the chicks are too cute!

I was wondering about a blue Copper and blue Orp cross, too. I wonder also if the dimorphic genes get passed on. Really a fun project to think about! Does she have a good lay rate, your hen? Hum... Too many things I wanna try!

Do you have any updated pics of this cross? I was thinking of doing that for meat chicken possibly.

summerrain9732, Do you have any updated pics of your red headed slatey chicks?  I have the same cross/variety in the brooder right now.  Just wandering how they'll feather out.  They are stunning as chicks tho!  Some are hatching out solid yellow and yellow with a black dot on their head so Im hoping for some shaded reds too!  Excited!

I can get some pictures, they pretty much turned out looking like a black sexlink hen color
